Project Description

The new 150,000-square-foot residential tower, is a new landmark in this vibrant 24-hour neighborhood adjacent to the earlier constructed 321-unit Watermark West. With a distinct identity, the project is strategically woven together with Watermark West to form the premier residential destination in the area. Together, the two towers offer extensive private and public amenities including a fitness spa, 24-hour concierge services, roof terrace, as well as retail, restaurants, outdoor parks, and a small kayak facility on a canal that feeds into the Charles River.

The 17-story tower is composed of glass and a metal curtainwall that contrasts and complements the punched windows in the adjacent building. The South side of the building features unified retail at the base that is fully integrated with existing retail at Watermark West. The North side features a distinct identity and entrance clearly separating the identities of the two residences. The new tower features 144 units composed of studios, 1- and 2-beds, and two penthouse units on the 16th and 17th floors. The 2nd floor roof deck will be integrated with Watermark West’s existing roof deck to create a seamless outdoor environment and provide access to the fitness spa in Watermark West. There are 4 stories of below-grade parking that tenants have access to.

In addition to the architectural design, CBT is also providing full interior design services for all public spaces including the lobby, mail room, reception, library, corridors and elevators as well as 1- and 2-bed model units. In addition to full interior design services, CBT created the art / program for the building.
